Hi Roger, I have uploaded some photos of the general habitat to sightings 4388653 and 4388652. It's basically thick kangaroo grass with some other herbs and most of the grasshoppers seemed to be centered around a young eucalypt tree. As I walked away from the tree the numbers tapered off. The records are from the Lions Youth Haven side of the fence and I didn't go over into the Reserve to check.
